Largely self-taught, Madeleine Barg is a longtime member of the Gimli Art Club. She is also a member of the Manitoba Society of Artists and the Pastel Artists of Canada.
She paints mostly with soft pastels and coloured pencils because they combine drawing and painting which she enjoys doing in a realistic manner. She loves the immediacy of both.
She has won numerous awards in each medium, including the Province of Manitoba Purchase award twice. She has paintings in private collections across Canada, and in England, the USA, and Mexico.
The creation of something new is not accomplished
by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity.
The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.
